Another day has gone by and we are still hanging in there. It has been a tough day on us. We are so physically exhausted after the past few days. Though tired, we are so grateful that we still have the opportunity open for our little angel.
Vittoria is doing much better than she was. She is only bleeding in the amount normal for post surgery recovery. She is pretty stable right now. They are increasing the heparin to thin her blood again so they can slow the pump down. It is such a balancing act to keep her alive. I admire the staff here and the vast knowledge that they have. It is incredible. I guess we do have the best of the best working on her.
We are now getting ready to call it a day. The realities of the situation hit me hard this afternoon. I realized that the only way we will all walk out of here is after a successful transplant. I pray it all works out but can't help but worry about the long wait. I already have people telling me that I am grayer than ever, look older, losing weight and I feel like my own heart is going to need treatment by the time we are done. We know that God's will is to be done. We will pray for the help. We know he is listening. If you don't think so, then I suggest you go to the beginning of this blog and read through what has happened so far.
We thank all of you who have been so close and supportive. We thank all of you who are praying for us and for her. So much faith has been exercised. We thank you all for your faith and prayers. Please keep it up! Please keep praying for our little princess.....
